Green Dot® Gold Prepaid Visa® Card Reviews
Your system gets too much information incorrectly. A waste of time, I wish you were more customer friendly? Too hard to get refund, so I'll only use you this time. I already paid for it! Very unsatisfied!!! No stars for you
Do not use this card if you need to count on having money. Huge mistake.
You cannot use a temporary card to make a withdrawal from an ATM or a bank teller.
You should be able to use the same login information to access your account via Green Dot’s mobile app. If you are still unable to sign in, call customer service and they should be able to help.
I want to know if it is possible to receive money on this card through PayPal or just shopping?
I'm selling jewelry, so I have to receive payment from my customers.
Who else is having this problem? I'm frustrated to say the least!
any that I can purchase to meet my needs?
1) You will be charged a 3% foreign transaction fee every time you use the card
2) You should call customer service and let them know of your travel plans so that they do not decline any transactions from the countries you will be traveling to.
Please keep us posted since this is a very interesting situation.
What you need to buy are gift cards instead:
He already bought a Gold GD card it’s not active yet. Or should he get a different card. He is also going to travel for 3 months in Canada and then back to the US again. Any advice thank you.
Also is it possible that GreenDot does not have your correct SSN or Address info because of a typo or something? You should also confirm with them that they do because that might also be causing the issue.
Please keep us posted and will try your best to help you!
So depending on where you are planning to use your prepaid card you should check whether they accept Visa or MasterCard or both and then apply for the least expensive card.
,but watch out for the ATM fees on that card because unlike the Green Dot Card it does not have any in-network ATM's where you can withdraw cash with $0 fees.
It is highly recommended that you call Green Dot and notify them prior to using your card internationally so that your transaction(s) does not get flagged as fraudulent and gets declined. Also please keep in mind that there is a 3% international transaction fee.
When you call them please confirm the above fee structure and let us know if it is not correct. Have a great time!
Please keep in mind that depending on your employer it might take up to 1 month in order to see your paychecks deposited directly on your prepaid card or checking account.
